. for more on the shock wave of the developments, let's bring in dan cato, cato institute and rick unger. rick, let me start with you, are we optomistic both sides moved the discussion forward or is that a fancy way of saying they moved it forward and are ignoring each other. >> i say in a word no. i'm not feeling it. there is little reason to believe we'll see something small or large before the end of the year. adam: dan, what do you think, will we see something large or small? if it is sma something sufficient to avoid calamity and doom and gloom or apocalypse. >> i'm less optimistic. whether it is obama's tax increase, whether we get obama's tax increase tomorrow or get it a month from now the net result is still the same. we're going to have a less competitive economy because of what is coming out of washington. adam: chime in, rick said, nah why do you say that? >> you will get a tax increase. i think number will be closer to 500,000 before we're done. certainly closer than 250,000. this is, i don't know, for years i've had to listen to this, it is going to hurt our economy if we r
learning that chevron 'has' obtained those permits. kron 4's dan kerman joins us now.with details. dan - that rebuilding plan generated quite a bit of controversy? >> reporter: it did catherine. it was all about the type of pipe that would be used to replace the one that ruptured. the concern here is what would be best to prevent corosion which is believed to be the cause of august's pipe failure. chevron proposed using a 9- percent chromium steel pipe. but the chemical safety board questioned why they were not using stainless steel with 18% chromium..which they believed was the industry standard. the city hired outside experts who ultimately concluded 9 chrome provides an "inherently safer design" with that the city of richmond went ahead and issued permits for the repair of crude unit 4. the chemical safety board said "we will not endorse or object to that decision" city councilman tom butt said he believes chevron "covered all their bases" and says ultimately no pipe will last forever which is why they must be "rigorously inspected on a regular basis." and catherine chevron says it
campaign and the influence on the electoral college with brendan doherty. later, dan friedman has an update on the hurricane sandy relief bill making its way through congress. "washington journal" is next. >> nobody will get 100% of what they want. let's make sure middle-class families and the american economy and the world economy are not adversely impacted because people cannot do their jobs. host: the headline in this morning's "washington post" -- president obama and senate leaders were on the verge of an agreement that would let taxes rise on the wealthiest households while protecting the vast majority of americans from tax hikes set to hit in january. welcome to the saturday edition of "and the washington journal." for the first 45 minutes of the program we are going to be talking about senate negotiating a fiscal clifts deal, what has been going on on that half of the capital. see what they are talking about and how things are going. we want to get your input and your part of the conversation. you can reach out to us on twitter. facebook, facebook.com/cspan. and you can sen
attended to at the scene. good evening, i'm cheryl jennings. >> and i'm dan ashley. tonight you can see something that hasn't happened 30 years. not this early in the season, anyway. marin county reservoirs overflowing with rain water. cornell bernard reports now from the bon tempe reservoir, one of several spilling over tonight. cornell? >> you know, dan, no one can remember this much water in december, behind me, bon, tempe dam is overflowing tonight. and every reservoir in marin is 100% full. water is shooting down this spillway. the lake is full, overflowing. so is bon tempe dam. rushing water cascading over the top into alpine lake, below. >> it's just so full. last time was probably last year at this point this, is not water but way out. >> it's beautiful especially if you're in water business. >> all reservoir
to pull their cash savings out to pay for higher taxes. here now is dan geller, executive vice president of market rates insight. dan, good to have you here. walk me through this math. you're saying the average american is going to put 54% less into savings this year because if we go over the fiscal cliff? explain. >> yeah. let's go back, michelle because the amount of taxation on an average household is effort mated at $2600, and right now the average savings -- bank savings per household is $5,000. so, yes, this would reduce the amount available for savings by more than half. >> when taxes have gone down, have you seen a subsequent rise in savings and what people put away? >> absolutely. this is the analysis that they did, they compared the two before the tax cuts and after the tax cuts and we saw two things, overall deposits in banks doubled during the tax cut period since 2001 from $4 trillion to $8 trillion. so there was a doubling of the amount of money that consumers deposited in banks and on the levels, as i mentioned before increased from about $2500 a year average to about $5,0
the requirements based on what you just said for the military to consider putting him to death. but you know, dan, so does another case. we're not seeing this kind of movement on that one. i'm talking about the fort hood shootings and accused mass killer, main jar nidal hasan. he killed 13 americans on the army base in texas. it has been 2 1/2 years. will we see the death penalty against him? better question, will we see any charges against him? >> certainly he is being prosecute and there are court proceedings going on. there was just an appeal decision whether he can have a beard during his trial. he will be prosecuted for murder. if there is ever going to be a case where someone should be prosecuted and the death penalty is used this would certainly fit it. this is premeditated and calculated and you had multiple people killed. harris: we'll see what happens. they have a new judge and that will cause more delays. it is set to get going in february. we'll follow both cases with viewers. a quick topic change with you, dan. there is news breaking this morning. we're expecting a vote to come on th
for any news. ashley: dan at the cme. dan, i want to talk gold. it's interesting, gold down eight or nine bucks on the day, and you think it's a safe haven play, but is it the profit takers trying to get ahead of higher tax rates to pay? >> it's possible, but i believe people think there's no grand bargain here. if they come to grips with a plan, the plan they talked about is tax rates. obviously, that's good, a nice headline, but that doesn't stop the sequestering io themes in play. if they are in play, that's deflationary, and that's why commodities are challenged lately. unless there's a good deal, gold will go down further. ashley: interesting. copper, silver, platinum, palladium, down across the board, isn't it? >> oh, for sure. none of the things we talked about, there's rumors now that maybe there could be some of the defense cuts spending in the sequestered items, but until now, no discussion at all about what happens to the other things other than income tax rates, and that's deflationary. good point. allen harry, seems to me, talk oil, allen, fluxuating, and we had a report that
sales. >> the only way to cia an endangered breed of cows is to serb them up. dan lothian. >> reporter: you are looking at one of the rarest, most endangered animals on the planet. the randall lineback cow. they are more endangered than polar bears, mountain gorillas, pandas, or tigers. it's estimated there are fewer than 500 of these cows left on the planet. not many some far-flung corner of the world, but most right here on a farm in northern virginia. joe henderson, a real estate executive and part-time farmer, is on a mission to save this historic breed of cattle from going extinct. >> i mean, you cannot look at these cows and tell me they're not beautiful. they really are. those little teeny babies -- >> they're cute. >> they are more than cute. i mean, they are -- >> what did you call them? >> they're the pandas of the cow world. >> it's very expensive raising these bovine pandas. >> this animal to survive must find a job. i think we've found a job, and the job is -- >> it is kind of counter intuitive that to rescue this breed, you have to consume it. kahol armstrong is a top che
turning point for republic i had dans thought he lost that election because he went back on that pledge and raise taxes. will you get anyone in the house to raise taxes at all? >> you make a great point that republicans have kind of their party identity has evolved that they are very consistent on this tax issue and have been since that episode in the '90s, but what you are missing i think is that conservatives are not -- they haven't arrived at a consensus position that this actually would be raising taxes. some of them do, some will vote against this, grover norquist says boehner's plan b wouldn't raise taxes. under current law, the rates are set to go up. >> we'll talk to you again, soon, i'm sure, even if it's not that soon it will be in february or march when we have to revisit this all over again. gentlemen, thank you so much. >> take care. >>> a new here no our viewers, you don't want to miss "meet the press," david gregory sitting down with president obama. check local listings for "meet the press" tomorrow morning. >>> turn to weather now. another winter storm. marching north,
. brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> dan burton is retiring from congress. he talked with c-span about his past investigations of the clinton investigation and the oversight role of congress. this is 30 minutes. >> how would you say the state is? >> it has changed a great deal. it is not the same as when i came 1983. there seemed to be more comedy. tip o'neill was speaker. i will never forget he was the first time he was on the floor raising cane with democrats. and he came down and started giving me the dickens. after that we became very good friends and played golf together. bob michael was a wonderful leader. there was a spirit of camaraderie even though we had differences politically then that we do not have now. now it is much more combative. i have a lot of friends on the democratic side of the aisle, very good friends. as far as working things out is not as easy as it used to be. >> what are some of the root causes? >> i think and i am not pointing fingers, when we went after jim wright, newt was the speaker and jim was forced out of office. they wen
dealmakers around and people like dan rostenkowsky and the late jack brooks when he was chairman of the judiciary committee. we need a few more people like that who know how to get thins done. unfortunately, we're in short supply right now. >> david, is john boehner's role -- has his role been diminished? >> no. i mean, look, what you have is a situation, i think what's clearly occurred here has been the house passed bills in terms of being able to avert this fiscal cliff, the senate has had difficulty in managing those bills and as a result of that harry reid ended up passing a completely different bill rather than taking up what could have been to get us into the traditional process and then they get to the congress where they get to negotiate and for some reason i don't understand why reid didn't pick up the two bills and simply pass them and amend them the way we wanted so we can get the congress. i'm sort of befuddled by that. >> that's a good point. jonathan allen raised an interesting point and it speaks to what you just said as well, david. this is from politico yesterday
. when i was back in d.c., we had dan and bob and they sat in an irish bar around the corner and worked out the tax bill in 1987, i believe the year was. that's the kind of leadership the article was just talking about. instead of the people that call up and paris at the propaganda, we really have to be practical. -- that parrot the propaganda. a house divided cannot stand. let me give my personal example. i live on $6.66 a day. that is food stamps. that is for single adults. i live on social security, $774 a month. i am trying to go back to cornell to do sustainable energy. we are in a double down on reaganomics in despite. jimmy carter had great inflation because for five years we were a peaceful country again. then reagan put us back into the largest military buildup in peacetime. i think that's what we ought to do is realize that did not work, just like some of the new deal stuff was not working correctly. what we have to do is c- span.org [indiscernible] i want to thank mr. richard delver of the department of transportation, because unlike michael bloomberg -- host: you have gone a

? the chinese and russians don't help us on sanctions. they have been ineffective because china that dan. you know, when you look at it, everything that we have tried after the bush years has been a failure. now, during the bush years in the early part of that administration, it puts real financial squeeze on the regime. but then they drop it because they have this fantasy that if we can just sit down one more time with the north koreans, suddenly we will have a deal that will make all this go away. it is not how the world works. the north koreans are getting better each time out launching missiles and setting off nuclear explosions. >> on that note, how realistic do you think it is? and how soon do you think it would be that they would be able to i'm one of these long-range missiles with a nuclear warhead? >> that is the real question. this last missile test was real important because it showed that they were successful. they got it up into the atmosphere. it can go a long way to the united states. now, if they perfect nuclear explosions and start miniaturizing it, being able to put it on a

public editor, dan. he was pretty critical. i didn't all the agree with him and he had his kind of quirks like everybody else does and he couldn't stand klugman who i think is quiet good. and then gentle barney very rarely raised his voice so they liked him. and i was pretty -- kind of critical of him. he's a very nice man but didn't push them. then the next person was craig whoy thought was quite good. then they had author who didn't finish his term and didn't have much to say. but i think really what we need in the public editor frankly, and i have said this in print, not in the book, but they need kind of a somewhat trance gressive feistty public editor who calls them to account. for example, their financial reports, i've talked about that, are often semibog gus. they are on the mystic and were issuing reports that weren't true. if they issue reports ten years in a row that are overly optimistic somebody should call them on this. they just write stories about themselves. but i think we could have a little bit of a -- they should be called to account on lots of things. they should be ca
